non-deterministic Berkeley DB-error "../db:\n Not enough space"

Hello,

 

I have a repository of approx 800MB in size. When I want to checkin approx. 650 files of totally 300MB Subversion gives me 3-4 times the db:/Not-enough-space-error below (excerpt from apache's error.log). Then the commit succeeds.

 

When I try to checkin a small amount of data the commit succeeds at the first time. Same with one big file of approx 700MB.

 

The error happens to be in multiple repositories (../design/db and ../ps/db in the err-msg below) lying all in the same folder (../svn). I checked in the bunch of files with the TortoiseSVN-client over a network, the big file with the commandline-tool itself directly from the server.

 

On www.contractor.se I found some people reporting a similar error, relating it to a Berkeley-problem with two CPUs or RAID-5 systems, but that threat ended unfinished. In the end they suspected the client to be the fault - which might be the case here as well (s. configuration below).

 

Since the error is not reproducible, I would love to find someone with similar problems and a solution before I go out and try multiple configurations. Any hints are also appreciated.

 

This is my configuration:

Server:

HP rp5430

OS HP-UX 11i, B.11.11

2 CPUs

Approx. 100GB free disk space

No quota for the user that started apache.

Apache 2.49

Berkeley DB 4.2.52

Subversion 1.0.2 (r9423)

 

Client:

TortoiseSVN 1.0.8 (r1430), build against Subversion 1.0.6 (r10360)

 

The error message:
